Godolphin colt Beyliks has won the first of the season’s official two-year-old barrier trials in Sydney.
By champion Lonhro out of Group Three winner Ottoman, Beyliks drew away to win over 850 metres on the Kensington track at Randwick on Monday morning.
Horses that compete in the officials trials get first preference for entry into the early two-year-old races.
The first juvenile features, the Breeders’ Plate and the Gimcrack Stakes, are on October 5 at Randwick.
The $3.5 million Golden Slipper in March at Rosehill is the world’s richest race for two-year-olds.
